Real Food - Real Life - Real Fun: RIGHT TO KNOW GMO CT By Tara Cook-Littman

Real Food - Real Life - Real Fun: RIGHT TO KNOW GMO CT


Recently, I spoke at a press conference in Hartford about the GMO labeling bills in CT.  Below is my statement.  It came from my heart.  Click HERE for an article about the day.  

"We are proud to announce the growth of the Right To Know GMO CT coalition that is bringing together individuals, organizations, farmers, restaurant owners and national organizations to send a strong message that we will not stop until CT residents have the right to know what is in their food.

I represent the Grass Roots Movement that has been the heart and soul of the CT GMO Labeling movement. Mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, farmers, chefs, dietitians, and Dr.s among others, have come together to demand our right to know what is in our food.  Such a simple request - the right to know what is in our food so we can choose whether or not to feed our families GMOs.  A right the citizens of 62 other countries, including all of Europe, Japan, China, New Zealand, and Australia already enjoy. But not here in America where we are shopping totally blind, worse than that, we are being misled to believing we are buying non GMO products when we see the word natural on a package (show bag of corn chips and how misleading it is, example of the desperate need for labeling so consumers can make informed choices.)
